Yesterday i plugged my ipad up and let it charge over night and when i woke up it said 72 percent and it charged for about 7 hours it usually says 100% but it stopped at 72% and it wouldnt charge no more after that i even tried to plug it to the computer and the computer wouldnt sync it or even detect that it plugged in. The ipad wouldnt work to the cord at all. nothing was wrong with the cord because i works with my ipod and phone fine. So i let the ipad go dead and i plugged it in and it finally charged but when i finally came back on it said not charging at the top. When i plug my ipad up to the wall outlet its saying not charging.......it has never done this before....whats wrong?  i havent even had it that long

    Are you using the charger that came with your iPad and not the one that came with your iPod or iPhone?

    The iPad needs 10w of charge to charge correctly this is not achievable from all but the very latest USB ports

    and that is why the iPad has a 2A powerpack .

    The normal iPhone charger is 5w (1Amp) and therefore charges an iPhone correctly as does the USB port


    With this in mind your iPad would appear to behave strangely If you have carried out normal troubleshooting

    procedures inc a restore maybe a Genius Bar visit is called for

    iPad Charging


    "The fastest way to charge your iPad is with the included 10W USB Power Adapter.


    iPad will also charge, although more slowly, when attached to a computer with a high-power USB port (many recent Mac computers) or with an iPhone Power Adapter.


    When attached to a computer via a standard USB port (most PCs or older Mac computers) iPad will charge, but only when it's in sleep mode.


    Make sure your computer is on while charging iPad via USB. If iPad is connected to a computer that’s turned off or is in sleep or standby mode, the iPad battery will continue to drain."
